It definitely the pump. you can get a new one from any Toyota dealer or you can buy one at a auto parts store (Checker, Autozone, etc.). you may have to pull the pulley off the old pump and reuse it, if so then i would take it to a shop. if the new pump comes with a pulley installed on the pump then it should be pretty easy, probably take a couple hours.

    oh, and if it leaks then you need to find out where its leaking from, your new pump should come with new o-rings for the power steering lines, make sure you put them in.

My variable steering effort light comes on after I be driving a long time what do I do it is a 2005 grand Prix


If you haven't been losing or having to add Power Steering fluid it sounds like it could be your pressure sensor module. They are usually down on the rack and pinon device. I am assuming you do not have any Power Steering hoses leaking. YOU might put some card board under your Vehicle motor at evenings if your work Days. If in the morning and you pull the card board out you will either have fluid on it or not. If their is fluid and is red in color it is most likely your Power Steering hose and needs replace. Some are easier than other to change. you have a suction hose that pulls the Fluid in and the ptessure hose to move pressure Fluid out. Good Luck.

How to add power steering fluid to 2008 pontiac g6


If you can't find a power steering fluid reservoir under the hood in the engine compartment your G6 could have Electronic Power Steering . If you look up under the dash below the steering column you will see a electric motor mounted to the steering column !
The power steering system reduces the amount of effort needed to steer the vehicle. The system uses the powertrain control module (PCM), body control module (BCM), power steering control module (PSCM), discrete battery voltage supply circuit, steering shaft torque sensor, steering wheel position sensor, power steering motor, driver information center (DIC), and the serial data circuit to perform the system functions. The PSCM and the power steering motor are serviced as an assembly and are serviced separately from the steering column assembly. The steering shaft torque sensor and the steering wheel position sensor are not serviced separately from each other or from the steering column assembly. The steering column assembly does not include the power steering motor and module assembly.

You need to add BRAKE fluid. After that, blead your brakes. You need to find out where the brake fluid went. If there are no leaks, you need to check the remaining life on all four brake sets. If you have no leaks, chances are pretty good that you need new brakes.

hi Jo,the power steering is powered by the fanbelt and if its slipping will cause it to go heavy but a light would come up on the dash to tell you the alternator was not charging.so if not the belt,it could be the electrics for the pwr steering need looking into,this is easier to get on the dealers diagnostic computer which will show up the exact fault.and would save any guesswork.

Range rover l322 2002 heavy power steering renewed


The Solenoid fitted on the Steering Rack is not getting the command from The Body Control Unit. Kindly Replace your BCM and then your problem is solved. You can try to make sure by giving direct current of 12v to the solenoid and check the Steering. if it works then simply change the BCM as it's not giving d command to the Solenoid. Salman EiD

Can you tell me why my volvo 850 t5 estate the steering is very heavy, plenty of steering fluid? sudenly becomes heavy, will then go back to normal then heavy again.


sounds like your power steering is failing, get it checked at a garage asap, steering is important when going fast :), probably needs steering wheel taken apart and power steering components checked for wear/damage.

Power steering light comes on and then I loose power steering


Gonna take a gander at a guess, and say a power stearing pump. Are you losing power brakes at the same time? If so, probably a serpentine belt. Or a loose pulley (bearing) in there. If only power stearing, check the power stearing fluid first.
